Gifts and Memories

Theme: My History
By Sara Jones

The items in the composition combine personal memories with "bigger" histories - e.g., the end of the GDR (which ran "out of time"). The items on the table are all gifts of different kinds, or mark special events: a watch from my school friends (which stopped at 5 to 12), a German translation of Shakespeare left behind by a colleague, a DDR number plate given to me by a student, a cork from a PhD viva celebration, and mini gin bottles from my 40th birthday (during the pandemic).
